The general assembly finds that individuals with mental retardation or developmental disabilities residing in the state face a shortage of suitable residential facilities; that loans to finance the development of suitable residential facilities are subject to high interest rates; that eligible organizations, otherwise willing and able to develop suitable residential facilities, are unable to do so because of the high interest rates; and, consequently, that the shortage of suitable residential facilities is likely to continue and worsen.
The residential facility linked deposit program, when implemented in a county, is intended to provide low-cost funds for lending purposes that will effectively reduce high interest rates and materially contribute to remedying the shortage of suitable residential facilities for individuals with mental retardation or developmental disabilities who reside in the county.
